Title: Events in NH, NH liberty related calendars and more
Post by: sj on December 01, 2008, 03:04:17 pm
Edit: This is the most comprehensive calendar. http://www.nhcalendar.org

I've decided that for all new movers I come in contact with, I am going to direct them to the various calendars and forums that will help them get involved in activism.  Just as important as activism are social events, since people need a support structure if they're going to stay in New Hampshire long term.  It would be disappointing to see someone move and then leave because they didn't connect with the large circle of friends and activists that are here.

I encourage you to mention the following links when you are talking to or e-mailing new movers.  If you are a new or prospective mover, I encourage you to check them out.

I thought the parable of the sower was analogous to what I'm saying: Mark 4:3-20 (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark%204:3-20;&version=49;)


Edit: I edited this post so to include a more complete picture of various activities in New Hampshire.  This line and everything below it was added to this thread by someone other than sj.

The FSP hosts two major annual events: the New Hampshire Liberty Forum in the winter, and the Porcupine Freedom Festival (a.k.a. PorcFest) in the summer. The former is more formal, with many high-caliber speakers, while the latter is a more informal, with state tours, shooting-range trips, concerts, and other events that showcase New Hampshire and the FSP. Both are fun, with a high-energy, enthusiastic environment. Around 250 to 450 people attend Liberty Forum.  Around 700 to 1000 people attend Porcfest.

There are a number of calendars for liberty inspired events not affiliated with the FSP. Consider checking the calendars if you are visiting, scheduling a move-in party or just looking to hang out with other liberty folks. Please keep in mind that if there are a lot of other events already planned for the day that you want help moving, fewer people are likely to show up.

Thank you for pointing us in a good direction.  We've just moved, met some wonderful people who helped us move in and gave us some great advice.  I pulled up this thread and this gives those of us who are new, a concrete place to start, thanks!

This is a great thread.

New movers should also subscribe to the various announce lists, depending on where they live.  I believe there are YahooGroups lists for Merrimack Valley Porcupines, Concord Area Porcs, Monadnock Porcs, Upper Valley Liberty groups, and the Seacoast Liberty Group Meetup list. 

These are all great ways to keep apprised of important events, both social and political.  There are also monthly Porc meetings around lunchtime in Manchester and Concord, as well as weekly mixers in Manch, Nashua, Dover, and Keene.  And 1-2x per month in the Upper Valley (Lebanon/Hanover/Canaan) area.

I think it's fair to say that I won't end up with a large list of social connections.  I'd be happy with finding a good job and some land to live on and use and spend the rest of my time doing activism.  If I end up with a great deal more social connections in NH so be it. Maybe FSPers are different from people I'm use to.

those calendars are for both social and activism... and sometimes the two events merge.  I often have the most 'social fun' doing activism.

How 'bout a calendar that covers all of New Hampshire (filterable by region) and events of all types (political, outreach, educational, social, medai and more)?

You can find it at PorcCalendar.com (http://PorcCalendar.com)
